Leica 50mm f/2 APO-Summicron-M ASPH: Aperture Series (M240, Wyman Cabin Table)

I’ve added an aperture series with the Leica 50mm f/2 APO-Summicron-M ASPH on the Leica M Typ 240.

This simple still-life shows a hallmark of the 50/2 APO ASPH: a remarkable high contrast clarity. This clarity is due to three things: (1) a high level of color correction, (2) very high micro contrast and (3) a very low level of other optical aberrations. The image really “pops”.

When one sees the bitingly sharp detail that the 50/2 APO can render, it’s a head scratcher in the context of Leica thinking which runs along the lines of “24 megapixels is plenty of resolution”. I would like to see Leica get to 48 megapixels with a user option to output either 48 or 36 or 24 megapixel DNG raw from such a sensor. Oversampling has many benefits, not the least of which is eliminating the occasional ugly moiré that one sees with the M240.
